Remember when I killed my team last week? I was certain that my team was cursed and don’t worry, it still is…but only for the players on my roster.

Another one went out this week, broken collarbone for C.J. Spiller.

I am so sorry for the remaining people on my team, if you get injured it is totally my (selfish) fault.

However, last week has proven that my cursed team can win with the few remaining players I had left. I won both matchups in my two leagues and felt very proud of myself. This is the first time I have done so poorly in my leagues and never thought this to be possible but it is a humbling lesson to start the first half of fantasy football season. This week I am hoping to scrape by and do well again but I am probably being way too optimistic at the moment.

That being said, I am very optimistic about the following guys this week too:

  • LAMAR MILLER (RB-Miami) HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO PICK HIM UP IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DO SO!?!??!! Anyways, start him, he’s gonna have a big game. I’ve decided. Also a good backup is K-State grad Daniel Thomas. I just think against Jacksonville’s interesting defense that these guys could have big games. Mainly Miller, but Thomas has been seeing more snaps lately as well.
  • Doug Baldwin (WR-Seattle) Since Percygate is now over, Percy Harvin’s spot is being filled by Doug Baldwin. Undrafted out of Stanford, Baldwin has done a good job with Seattle’s offense. Gladly taking over that role with a big game against St. Louis despite a loss. Seattle heads to Carolina this week and I believe he will have a good game against Carolina’s spotty defense.
  • Travis Kelce (TE- KC) Kelce does great when he gets the ball. This guy is non-stop and is a playmaker. Also needs Andy Reid to realize what an amazing offensive weapon this guy is. I’m pretty sure Fasano should be benched for life and Kelce needs to take over TE1 on this team. He’s either gonna be unstoppable against STL or get zero targets. It’s a toss-up but since Reid and his entire coaching staff listens to our podcast, they will know to play him more this week.

Have any stories of sleepers? Did any of my picks help you win a matchup? No? Okay well what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
